5 Tips To Reduce Stress While Traveling

Travel Tips - Ross French - August 19, 2021

Are you itching to travel? If it’s been too long since you felt the thrill of adventure, now is a great time to put on your traveling shoes and head out the door. While you may be hot-to-trot, it’s important to look for ways to reduce stress while traveling. Here are 5 tips to help you simplify your choices, slash stress, and fully enjoy your adventures.

Skip The Car

Have you always rented a car in a new city? If so, you are in for a big treat. Instead of automatically renting a car, use alternate transportation. Think about riding a bike, using public transportation, or getting a driver. Renting a bicycle is a terrific way to see a city, town, or region. You’ll be out and about exploring side streets, romantic lanes, and getting away from the tourist regions.

Traveling by bicycle also means traveling without the insulation of a personal shell. You’ll be able to talk with locals, explore the back roads, and find sights you’d never encounter from an automobile.

If you aren’t a bike-person, explore public transportation. Buses, trains, and trams are popular modes of travel in many countries. You’ll meet people and get a taste of life like a local.

If you don’t want to bike or use public modes of transportation, get a driver. You may enjoy using services that you can control from your phone. New services make it possible to arrange contactless curbside pickup, without ever having to place a phone call.

With these options, you can travel about and not have the stress of driving. You’ll also steer clear of having to get an International drivers license, or deal with nerve-wracking traffic. Plus, if you’re used to driving on one side of the street, you won’t have to translate everything to the opposite side. If you’ve gone from driving in the U.S. to driving in Australia – you know exactly how stressful this can be.

Create A Picture Book

While you’re traveling, it’s stressful to try to live in the moment – and plan for future storytelling. If you’ve got a picture book, scrapbook, or photo album in mind – start with a plan.

Organize your travels so it’s easy to create memories of your favorite moments. You might go old school, and have a set of envelopes for each day of your trip. Just stash your mementos into the envelope and label each one by date and place.

Once you’re back home, you’ll have a blast going through the envelopes and reliving the moments. And, when you’re home, you can decide if you want to organize your trip in a classic scrapbook or an online collection.

Stay Safe

Getting sick while traveling is stressful. Of course, there are some things that may be out of your control. To stay safe while traveling, check current conditions.

You can reduce stress when you follow the guidelines for safe travel. These will include updates about international and domestic travel. You can also check on vaccinations, testing requirements, mask updates, and specific recommendations for destinations.

Have a Master Plan

Do you enjoy making a master plan for your trip? Some people find that having an overview, itinerary, and reservations gives them a sense of security. If this sounds like you, do your best to create a master plan for all the basics.

Organize your trip with hotel reservations, travel arrangements, and details to help you enjoy travel with minimal stress. Naturally, you may also want to do advance research on sites, museums, and special areas of interest.

If you don’t like to have a master plan, you are in charge. You may be a free spirit who enjoys traveling wherever the winds take you. If so, take time to communicate your dreams with your traveling companion. You’ll save yourself loads of stress by discussing your priorities and travel preferences in advance.

Be Flexible With Changes

Even with a clear agreement and a master plan that matches your personalities, stay flexible. Things happen. Weather changes. Events occur.

You may not be able to plan everything down to the last detail – and have things go that way. If things change, what can you do?

Be agile. Stay flexible. Adapt to changes and enjoy the ride.

It’s often said that the most interesting parts of a trip or vacation are the unplanned bits. This is when you’ll stumble on a back roads vista, hidden hotel, or off-roads trail. You’ll meet people and explore places that are ‘off-the-itinerary.’

Have a great trip – and enjoy traveling with less stress!
